Stonebriar Centre kicks off the holidays with a special Welcome Party for Santa at The ICE on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

There will be skating performances by the Stonebriar Centre Skating Academy, the Synchronized Skating Team and solo skaters who compete at the national level. The merriment will hit a holiday high as the Zamboni enters the rink with Santa aboard.

At 4:30 p.m., Santa will visit with guests and then everyone’s invited to parade with him through Stonebriar Centre as he makes his way to the "New North Pole," located near Dillard’s and Sears. There is no charge to attend the “Santa on Ice Welcome Party” and reservations are not necessary. Stonebriar Centre is located at Preston Road and SH 121 in Frisco.
